Ocean Atlantic is the perfect vessel for expedition cruising in the polar waters. With an international ice class rating of 1B she is one of the strongest ships operating in the polar regions. Her high maneuverability, shallow draft and strong engines allow for extended voyages into isolated area, creating exciting adventures for any traveler.

Ocean Atlantic was renovated in 2016 with elegant common areas and accommodation for 198 passengers. Daily shore landings are made possible by her fleet of 20 Zodiacs. The ship was built in 1985 and underwent an extensive rebuild in 2010. With a length of 140 m, she has ample space on the multiple decks for several lecture halls, a relaxed restaurant serving 4-star international cuisine, professionally staffed bars and observations platforms – and even a pool. All common areas on the Erickson Deck feature large panel windows, enabling passengers to quickly spot passing whales and photographic sights from the comfort of indoor lounges. All private cabins are stylishly appointed and feature individual bathroom facilities, phone for internal calls and TV. Ideal for relaxation, the vessel’s cabins ranges in size from 11 - 35 m² and are designed with either portholes or windows.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
